Podcasts offer another way to soothe the soul

Olivia Beauchemin, Staff Writer

Unless you’ve been under a rock for the last few years, you know that every expert under the sun recommends that we make time in our busy schedules for self-care. Sometimes figuring out what that looks like, however, is more difficult than one would think. If you find yourself in need of some you-time, consider checking out one of the podcasts below, recommended by our very own Wolf staff, for some much-needed pampering, entertainment, and introspection.


“Emergency Intercom” by Enya Umanzor and Drew Phillips

It’s just funny and kind of a good escape. It comes out on Fridays, so I have something nice to listen to in my last class of the week.” – Zelda Zamora-Villa, Staff Writer


“Philosophize This!” by Stephen West

It’s nice to fall asleep to. It’s pretty easy to learn from or to kind of synthesize other learning with. I’ve been able to, through this podcast, see a lot of ideas I have my own opinions about through the lens of the host, who usually takes different interpretations or messages from stuff.” -Liam Frith, Staff Writer 


“Unexplainable” by Noah Hassenfeld

 “I like to listen to ‘Unexplainable’ while I cook. It keeps me entertained.” -Emma Regimbald, Staff Writer


“Trying Not to Care” by Ashley Corbo

 “I find that listening to podcasts about improving mental health has made it a lot easier for me to feel more confident because I can just go by my regular day while listening to something motivational. It has changed my perspective by making me feel less worried about what the world thinks of me, and it’s extremely easy to listen to it while doing homework, shopping or cooking.” -Sam Dunn, Staff Writer

It’s funny, and they talk about other niche topics that have expanded my social identity in other cultures” -Simon Phipps, Co-News Editor
